Friends of the State Historic Sites of the Hudson Highlands will hold their annual meeting on Thursday, October 13th at Washington’s Headquarters in Newburgh. Beginning at 5:30 PM with a reception, the meeting will start at 6:00 PM, followed by a special presentation for Archives Month. Admission is free.
While attending this gathering, all are invited to join the Friends, whose mission is to increase public awareness of Washington’s Headquarters, Knox’s Headquarters and the New Windsor Cantonment’s historical and educational significance, to raise funds to supplement educational, programming and collection needs of the sites, and to offer quality educational and history-related items for sale to site visitors. In their role as volunteers, all three sites have relied upon them for assistance during special events.
